Smoked Salmon and Dill Cups

I’m guessing that because tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, many of you probably have some party plans. Just in case those plans include food, I wanted to share one last appetizer fit to ring in the New Year. With smoked salmon, fresh dill, cream cheese, sour cream and a little garlic all piled into a crispy wonton cup these little bites are sure please all of your party attendees.

This is essentially smoked salmon dip in a cup. I have already made a smoked salmon dip but with this recipe I decided to use the winning combination of smoked salmon and dill.  While it tasted great on its own, I knew that I didn’t want to serve just another dip. I wanted to make it a little prettier on the plate so I decided to bake some wonton wrappers and spoon the mixture inside. The result was the perfect bite of crunch and creaminess.

Smoked Salmon and Dill Cups Recipe

Meanwhile, in a bowl combine remaining ingredients until mix well.
